There is just one character meal opportunity within the Universal parks – at the Confisco Grille’s character breakfast. This is your opportunity to dine with SpiderMan, Thing One and Two and the Cat in the Hat.
Character dinners happen several times a week at one of the three resort hotels – this gives you a chance to have dinner with Scooby – you can make reservations up to 3 months in advance.
If you’re not bothered about eating with the characters but just want to take photos with them you get lots of opportunities in the parks. We have bumped into Dora the Explorer and the Simpsons by the entrance gates, Spiderman and (my favourite) Captain America often show up in the Marvel superheroes area, we have also seen the Cat in the Hat, the Grinch and Thing One and Two in the Seuss Landing area of Islands of Adventure. My favourites though are when I see Scooby in the Mystery Van going round the Park and actually queuing an having photos with Shrek and Donkey outside the Shrek in 4D movie. Donkey is hilarious – very funny!
